You know all about recycling, but did you know that recycled items can make great art? The Zoological Society is hosting its annual eco-themed art contest for children ages 17 and under. Participate and win fun prizes! Here’s how it works: Kids can pick any kind of discarded materials, such as soda cans. Then, create an art project using these recycled materials only (tape and glue are okay). This year's theme is South America. Artwork should include South American animals such as jaguars, tapirs and macaws.
Parents, fill out the form online or download the entry form to print off and mail in by Aug. 11. Projects will be displayed at the Milwaukee County Zoo on Aug. 26 at Animal Safari. This is a behind-the-scenes event for animal sponsors. Contest registration does not include entry into the behind-the-scenes tours. Sponsor an animal here to receive an invitation to participate in the tours.
Please see the updated contest guidelines for important information. If you have any questions, please contact Becky at 414-258-2333.
